About

Locket's Meadow Farm Sanctuary (aka Rescues Who Rescue) has over 100 animals, including horses, pigs, cows, sheep, goats, llamas, yard birds, and an adorable alpaca. Nearly all of our animals eat hay and/or grain/feed specific to their dietary needs twice a day; however, many of our animals (especially the pigs!) would love and benefit from the type of produce that is thrown into dumpsters in restaurants every day. This is a win-win situation to reduce waste and help improve the lives of these cherished rescue animals. We are seeking a Volunteer Restaurant Waste Program Coordinator that can build a program that is currently in it's infancy. This person will be responsible for finding restaurants to participate in the program and coordinating with volunteers to do the pickups and drop offs at least once a week. The ideal volunteer will be able to effectively communicate with prospective and participating restaurants, coordinate with volunteers, and trouble-shoot logistic issues as they may come up.
